L.A. Witch conjure a strangely enchanting sound that draws from punk and garage rock, but it’s also infused with tons of reverb-laden atmosphere that imbues the local trio’s songs with a ghostly, mysterious and unsettling sense of dread. “Baby in Blue Jeans,” from L.A. Witch’s upcoming, self-titled album, is a seemingly straightforward love song that becomes an almost funereal incantation as singer-guitarist Sade Sanchez coos solemnly over Ellie English’s echoing drums. Bassist Irita Pai propels “Untitled” with a rootsy Gun Club vibe, and “Drive Your Car” is another surging blast of white-line fever. “Kill My Baby Tonight” is slower and more momentous, as Sanchez lulls a sleeping lover with coolly morbid vocals against a rusty framework of Dum Dum Girls/Jesus and Mary Chain–style chords.
